Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

5G Wireless, expected to roll out around 2020’s, will provide advanced spectral, signaling, and energy efficiency (“green” initiatives), higher data rates, improved capacity, reduced latency, and support of large-scale sensor networks to meet the requirements of the next generation mobile networks.
In this course, we will conduct an in-depth study of the drivers, potential technologies, and major applications of 5G wireless, including Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and Internet of Things (IoT). Realistic examples and case studies, in line with plausible early-use scenarios for 5G, are also included.
Since 5G is still evolving, the course content is automatically updated to synch with the state-of-the-art when it’s taught. It can also be adapted to your specific needs or interests.

 

Customize It!

  • If your team lacks the necessary LTE/LTE-A background, the course can be extended to include it.
  • While this version of the course is aimed at a technical audience, a less technical version of the course with emphasis on business issues is also available.
  • For those interested in specific applications, such as M2M or IoT, the course can be extended to include a workshop on such topics.
Audience / Prerequisites
